The United States Has Shipped 400 Million Doses Of Covid Vaccine Around The World |Viral News
A total of 400 million doses of the COVID vaccination will have been distributed worldwide by the end of Wednesday, according to the Biden administration.
Despite the fact that the 1.2 billion doses the United States has pledged to provide will help avoid more fatalities and lessen the likelihood of new COVID mutations, this is an important first step.
According to the White House COVID-19 response coordinator Jeff Zients, “to put America’s leadership in perspective, we have shipped four times more free doses around the world than any other country.”
On the other hand, “Our tools operate even in the face of a highly transmissible variety, which is why we continue to move toward a day when COVID won’t disturb our regular lives, a time when COVID is no longer an emergency but rather something that we defend against and treat.”

The World Health Organization and the worldwide COVAX program have slammed the United States and other rich countries for deciding on booster doses.
Priority should be given to distributing COVID-19 doses to people around the world rather than to those who have already been vaccinated, they urge.
U.S. officials have claimed that vaccinating Americans will temporarily deplete the world vaccine supply, but that the doses it has agreed to contribute will not be affected.
It was announced by the Biden administration that the United States would provide three dosages for everyone that is given here.
Vaccination rates in Africa trail far behind those in other countries, in part because of the continent’s limited supply of vaccines.
This shows the vast disparity in access between rich and poor countries, with just 15 of 54 African countries meeting a goal of at least 10% of their population being vaccinated by September 30.
The last few weeks saw an increase in global instances of Omicron, a COVID variant that appears to be more easily transmitted but less severe than other COVID variants. However, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, the number of deaths from the virus has maintained at roughly 50,000 each week.
